Does anyone here know how much it costs EK to install each suite? I read somewhere that it's $125,000 USD, but that can't be true. That much per suite? And I don't just mean installation, I mean the ife, doors, electric, pretty much how much it costs for everything it takes to make the suite full up an running, and working.

Thanks for any info!

There is currently another thread on the cost of cabin refurbishments. While no verified numbers are there yet it might provide some information.

Cabin Refurbishment Costs (by lmml 14/32 Mar 2 2012 in Tech Ops)

The cost of all airplane seats is more than many people think. Don't forget you don't just have to build the seat but you have to have it tested and certified, none of which I would imagine is a cheap process. Those costs would be passed along with the sale of the seat. For example simple economy seats are mentioned as costing at least 10 000 USD. If we think about what is involved with those compared to an EK suite its not hard to imagine that the cost would rise significantly.

Doesn't sound too high to me. Also consider that with ticket prices probably over US$10000 per flight for that seat you've paid for the seat itself in a week or two.

definitely in the ballpark... Seats (and galleys and engines and a ton of other stuff) is BFE and the airline pays that cost on top of the price of the airframe itself.

Oh yes it can. Anything certified to go into an aircraft that affects passenger safety can be very expensive.

125,000 is about right for a premium first class suite.

Here's an article about the price of airline seats based on cabin. They top out at about $150,000.
